Aiden is moving in with Nolan which should be interesting. Jack is not happy with that development for reasons I don’t understand. I thought Jack hated pretty much everyone now and so what’s it to him?
Emily confronts Sarah at the farmer’s market after see her together with Daniel there. Emily fake cries to get Sarah to feel bad about seeing Daniel. Sarah tells Victoria she will not help her break up Emily and Daniel.
Charlotte is being blackmailed by someone who stole her phone which apparently contained some nude photos of her. Aiden is going to take care of her problem.
Revenge is one of the shows I watch religiously but rarely blog about. A lot of that has to do with Sunday nights being so jammed packed with shows. But I thought I would do one today as I try to jump off the crazy train and get back to reality. It helps to keep busy.
The previews showed a dead looking Nolan in the bathtub so I was dying to see what that was all about. Apparently he was just basking in the afterglow of his first night with Patrick in the bathtub with ear plugs in. Based on the ransacked condition of the house, one can assume they had a rip-roaring good time. Amanda is NOT pleased at all by this pairing. I am a bit confused about who Patrick supposedly killed. Anyone? Oh he cut Conrad’s brakes. I had forgotten about that.
Conrad has sold Grayson Manor!
Victoria and Patrick’s mother son relationship is creepy. Like for real creepy.
Sarah, the girl who was in the car when Daniel got into a DUI related accident is showing up. She had a major spinal injury that she is still being treated for years later. What’s the point of introducing her into the storyline? Hmmmm Continue reading
Yet another instance of the rag over the adams’s apple! Make.It.Stop.
I know I don’t usually blog about this but I do watch and enjoy Revenge. Like everyone with any sense at all, I recognize that the best character on the show is Nolan. So can we discuss what the hell is going on with his wardrobe this season? Before we even talk about the clothes can we address the fact that he is clearly manorexic! He was headed there last season and now he is officially skeletal. Can someone feed Gabriel Mann as sandwich, please? He has that vegan/manorexical look if you ask me. I have no idea how to fatten up a vegan. Unless it is with Mango Apricot Greek Yogurt from Trader Joes. I am glad I looked at the calorie and fat count AFTER I tried some of that creamy goodness yesterday. Someone needs to send Gabriel a case. Continue reading
If you are like me, and addicted to TV while trying to wean yourself from Bravo you might be eyeballing some other options with the rollout of the new fall season. I’ve been cheating on Bravo like a trophy wife whose elderly husband is being held hostage in Somalia. So I thought I would give you a brief overview of just who I have been laying around with.
Michael J. Fox (The Michael J. Fox Show)
I grew up with Alex P. Keaton and I was excited to see MJF coming back to my small screen, Parkinson’s and all. If enough time passes since the break up, you start to forget the bad stuff about the relationship and think maybe the relationship deserves another chance. We’re older and more mature now, right? Well, I gave it the good ole college try, and I’m sad to report the spark wasn’t there. Plus, he expectedly lasts for just half the time now and I am just not sure what to do with the other half hour. It’s not working for me. Plus the name of the show is stupid. Continue reading

Georgia resident, Whitney Otawka is among the chosen chefs to compete on Top Chef: Texas . Otawka has worked as the executive chef at the Greyfield Inn on Cumberland Island has recently moved back to Athens to take the position of executive chef at Farm 255. She’s previously worked at Five and Ten in Athens, Restaurant Eugene and Holeman and Finch . She was also chosen as one of the Five Chefs to Watch in Atlanta for 2011 by Creative Loafing magazine.
Those restaurants are some pretty fancy pants places. John Kennedy Jr. got married at the Greyfield Inn. It’s a fantastic place that is very secluded and allows a very limited numbers of guests. If you want to stay on Cumberland Island, you take a ferry and then either camp bringing your own food (no ground fires) or you stay at the Greyfield. Or back when I went you get Lucy Carnegie herself to drive you in one of the only vehicles on the island out to her house with a dead bird in the jeep where she serves you bananas. But that is a whole nuther story.
If you stay at the Greyfield you eat some pretty high falutin’ food like pheasant with truffles and gnocchi with squash puree and crispy sage. Then you take a glass of wine down to the pristine beaches (a term that is way overused but accurate in this case) where you will likely not see another soul. If you are camping and go far enough in you can run around naked and get sunburned in weird places and sleep out in the wild with all sorts of creepy wild animals and drink until you pass out. Or, so I hear.
Those other restaurants are those kind of places you go to for comfort food when it is just your belly you want comforted and not your financial well-being. You can get grass-fed beef raised by Tibetan monks who sing to them daily made into a hamburger patty served as a burger with cornichon aioli and arugula where the ketchup and lettuce are supposed to be.
When she is not preparing twenty dollar hamburgers, Whitney actually seems pretty down to earth. She prefers smaller towns to cities and is fond of the wild boar on Cumberland Island. So far on the show she has been very under the radar. Other than the fact that she hugged all the judges when she got her jacket, she’s hanging out in the middle of the pack waiting to make her move.
I wish her lots of luck. Women don’t tend to fare well on Top Chef. Tom Colicchio is not know for his love of female chefs so she is going to have to pick up the pace a bit to try to get his approval. Watch for her to do well with pheasant, rabbit, pork and gnocchi if she is given a choice in the upcoming challenges. I believe the challenge this week is a chili cook-off. Since she was born in California, trained under a french chef, went to the Cordon Bleu, and has a fancy pants resume, I am afraid this might not be her week. But she is the closest thing to a homegirl we have so let’s all watch and pull for her to win the whole dang thing. Top Chef: Texas airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. which means you are going to need to DVR it or catch it on the reruns because that is when Revenge airs on ABC and there is no way anyone should miss that. Is there anyone from Atlanta on Revenge?
Leave me a comment and for the love of all that is holy if you are a real human please follow me on twitter because I believe all my current followers are Russian pornbots. ~@tamaratattles
